  1. Effect of vegetable oil diet on weight gain of diabetic mice. Values are presented as Mean + SEM. N = 6 in each group. There was no significant weight gain in the diabetic mice on all the vegetable oil formulated diets compared to the control mice on chow only (P < 0.05, Post Hoc Multiple Comparisons)
